I’m not a big dessert fan – but once in awhile we all crave a sweet treat (some of us more than others).  My husband is a big fan of peanut butter and chocolate so I came up with this sweet concoction in honor of him.

  • 1/4  cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (ground fine)
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter (I used crunchy)
  • 1 cup rolled oats

Grind up your cacao and oats in processor. You can also use unsweetened coco powder and any healthy cereal in this if you don’t have the raw cacao nibs.

Add the agave nectar (or honey as substitute) and peanut butter. Pulse until you have a rough mixture. Open the lid and taste it. If you want more sweetness add a little more agave, but not too much, you don’t want this to be runny.

Roll into balls and put on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and refrigerate until set.
I put mine in a glass container and returned to the fridge. Bon Appetit!
